We could go on for what seems like an eternity about our love of whiskey, bourbon in particular. While we’re consistently impressed with the interesting releases coming out of Kentucky, at the end of the day it’s all still the dark brown we appreciate and love to drink. Legent bourbon is kicking things up a notch with a whole new level of interesting because it blends Kentucky with Japan. Specifically, Legent combines Jim Beam and Suntory. Fred Noe, famous distiller of Beam, created the initial Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey distillate that was then shipped to Suntory’s distiller Shinji Fukuyo in Japan before he partially finished it in wine and sherry casks. In other words, Legent is a complex, layered bourbon that blends the best of Kentucky with the best of Japan, and honestly, we can’t wait to try what these two masterminds have created. The only issue with Legent right now is that we have absolutely no idea about distribution and availability.
